      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Minnkota V2 Powerdrive Trolling motor problems. Help?

Recommended Posts

I bought this trolling motor last year. Every time I brought it out I was blowing the same single fuse every time it was turned on. Well, just as soon as I thought I solved that problem and the motor was running with the right amount of torque finally, I got out on the lake and dropped the motor in and tried to flip on the switch for the motor and nothing happened! I could turn the head of the motor with the foot pedal but can't seem to get the motor running now. The fuse hasn't blown since either. What do you guys think is up?

Thanks,

Ben

Considering you were blowing fuses I wouldn't rule out one of Cliff's suggestions. What was the cause of that? Too small dia wire?

Get an electrical contact cleaner and clean the foot control connection.

Yeah I ended up pulling apart the foot pedal connection and looking at the male end and noticing the prongs to be discolored yellow an white. I just quickly cleaned them off and thats when everything started working. But an hour later I had no juice in that motor but I could direct the head of the trolling motor. I do hear click within the main unit when I turn the pedal on. So?

I don't know.

I had a similar problem. The lugs that go into the connector were not getting good connection because the female side terminals. i had to take the connector apart and pinch the leads together so when the male connector goes in they squeeze tighter. Mine would steer but when you tried to go it would draw to much power and loose connection. It did make a clicking sound too.

That sounds just like my problem. I could probably do that myself? When you are saying connector, are you talking about the connector between the motor and the foot pedal? How would I go about trying to fix this problem?

Thanks a bunch,

Ben
